So a clip appears showing nothing whatsoever conclusive, a poster calls for the player to be banned for years. A little bit over the top, probably not deserving of being called an idiot, but most certainly doesn't in turn make him a c**t. Lighten up folks :oops:

Just to clarify CGR, Sir Henry was calling another poster an idiot for comments made, Madders I think. That post has now been removed looking like Sir Henry stated the kerfuffle, which he did not.

I had deliberately left my response to the now deleted comment open as I thought it applied both to the SA hooker (if he has done what he is accused of) and the commentator.

I did not wish to overly discriminate between the two.

yes, my remark was aimed at a now deleted post not the chap calling for a ban or anyone else.

Just watched the NZ v France highlights. They've got some awfully big U20s in the french squad.

You can make your own minds up on what happened, but I understand that this incident has been identified and is currently under investigation.


Can you point to anything that says it's under investigation, I've just had a quick trawl and can't find anything....I've just asked the poster and it sounds like fake news to me.

If it is true....then there will not be a book big enough to throw at him and it should be a professional career ending move.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

If that’s the post you are mocking for suggesting a ban in years and not weeks I would suggest it is both balanced and reasonable unlike some subsequent posts.

I have just undeleted the game and found the incident - it is at 49:30.

On TV it is much clearer than on the twitter clip. Kpoku and the SA hooker exchange words while walking to the scrum then the incident occurs.

It is impossible to know just from this exactly what has happened and it would seem very odd for the guy to do what is alleged, especially as he is sandwiched between two black props. However it genuinely doesn’t look good. Henry Walker is looking directly at him then has a few words while shaking his head.

The original offending post has been removed...

Nevertheless the comment still hugely grates with me, which I think is shameful
